Here is my testimonial: Powell Peralta Boards are the best!!!
I've been skateboarding most of my life and I've skated all kind of boards, from the el;cheepo's to the most expensive, from old school to new and the boards I've loved most and still ride today is the Powell Peralta old school decks.
Although I got them as hand-me-downs from skaters who stopped or changed style of board, they are the most durable and the most wickedest to skate. My, I think its a James McGill, lasted me 8 years and the guy before me skated it for a good 10 years, hard core.
The one I ride now, although I'm not sure which one it is, I've had now for 15 years and the guy before me also about 15 years.
Besides tail and nose damage, nothing else wrong with it.
Brilliant boards!!! I'm definitely going to buy myself another one soon, the finger board looks perfect, my 1st officially brand new PP, can't wait.
oh, a little extra info - the rest of the specs read as follows, although not PP, but that will change with my next buy;
Vereflex base plate
golden state buck wheels, (awesome, had them for 22 odd years now, never changed)
and 50c bearings (been riding the same ones for 11 years now)
Thanks and hope this boosts the confidence of the makers of PP boards and those that wish to buy. GO GET A POWELL TODAY, YOU WON'T REGRET IT, GUARANTEED!!!
Thanks and kind regards,— Andy “Candyman”
Just got the the Cab in the purple pearl. You out did yourself on this one. Man do I live that deck.— Travis “PoppaShrek”
Hi guys, i`ve been trying to find the OST from the old video EIGHT, specially i`m crazy to know who plays the song that appears in the MIKE FRAZIER part, just at the start. I have both the video and the dvd an none info , can you please try to help me in my search?
Regards.— Victor Gallego
Over the last 25 years or so I've only skated a couple of P - P boards , Lance Mountain future primitive boards. I thought them to have been my favorites the company ever made, until recently. The Jesse Martinez tribute board is probably the best deck you guys have produced in quite awhile. Thank you. P.S. please bring back the 4 hole rib bones with the rat nuts, miss those a great deal. Enjoy the day!— Wad “Waddeem” Martin
G'Day Guys,— Gary “Ganoo”
As a child of the 80's, I grew up with 2 brands etched into my brain Powell Peralta and Morey Boogie. I'm happy to say that I still have my Tommy Guerrero skatie and my Mach 7-7 both of which my children now now ride. I recently pulled the deck grip off the Tommy to reveal the Powell logo that I hadn't seen since 87, I must admit I got a little emotional. Unfortunatley the bottom of the deck has lost all the art work but I plan on fixing it up and getting back on it. Cheers from Australia
Bring back the little monkey logo. That was one cool monkey.— Dave “David Carroll” Carroll
Classic T shirt, deck, what ever.
Powell needs to get this guy Martin Fobes on the team from jackson MI!— Addison Miller
Where the hell was Alan Gelfand at the Sundance Film festival? He needed to be interviewed with the other key members of the Bones Brigade. That my friends was a huge miss. What's up with that?— Jeff Stebbins
Ok, so I'm a 33 year old who has been absent from the skate world for about 20 years. I was talking with an old friend and he had sent me some pics of us skating...I have been reborn ! As a proud husband and father of six kids now , I've picked up rite where I left off ! After several viewings of animal chin , I purchased the new cab mechanical dragon fitted with all the goodies ( rib, tail & jaw bone ) , some nice g bones , and have been attempting a lot of things I used to do ...(I'm alittle sketchy)!! I'm also attempting to collect every Powell peralta sticker ever produced ! I'm going to build a custom wood frame out of old decks , get some custom glass cut , and it will be the centerpiece of our home. I'm about one third complete...I think....I've also purchased a classic poster of the winged ripper w/ all the products on the back wich is hanging framed in our home now. Along w/ other old Powell peralta items. I am soo happy to be skating again ! It's like I'm living again. I'm soo STOKED on the stickers , I cannot wait until its complete ! I would like to have a complete list . If anyone could help w/ this ? Thank you , Powell peralta for all the old memories and all the ones to be made ...if only I would had held on to all those old decks !! -born again, CJ— cJ “buck” Love
Took my wife to see the Bones Brigade movie at Hot Docs in Toronto. She loved it, and it brought back a flood of great memories for me.
Shortly after I spent an afternoon assembling my Mike Mcgill reissue with blue RatBones. I was smiling the whole time. Thanks.— Peter “J” Hampton
Sup shreders, just got me a sweet Caballero Chinese Dragon Re-issue. It is dope, the graphic if grarly to the bone and the feel of the ride is like it's a part of me. Just wanted to share my opinion from here in New Zealand, and hope to say how much I respect and credit Powell-Peralta. Up's to all you rad shredders out there. Stay gnarly. \m/— Austin Carter, fullstop.
Weren't Chad Bartie and VCJ supposed to be working on a new graphic for Chad? He needs one, and i want to own it!— Cheek
Viva la powell Peralta!
PP, I love your brand today just as much as I did as a kid. The most vivid graphics coupled with the best riders. All aces. I am really diggin the early Bones graphic tees you offer. So much so I have a suggestion of an old product I'd love to see come back and I would think would do quite well. You offered sweat pants (and maybe hoodies too) with the Bones skeleton doing handplants up the right and left hand seams. I'm certain navy with white puffy ink as well as red with white puffy ink were offered. I bought the red in about 1987. I bought the XL's so I could wear for a long time (I was 10 at the time). Hands down the most compliments I ever received about sweatpants in my life. Please bring back!! Below is a link to a picture online I found of the sweat pants in question. Or if you have any Deadstock of these laying around?!?!?!! I'm very interested.— Daniel “Pierre Moonswear” Sears, The Czar Agency
..And can we get Bones SPF in more Colors (like the Street Techs, man they have all the sick graphics and colors!). Regardless, when I'm at the park everyone is skating Bones Wheels, so VIVA LA POWELL PERALTA!— Cheek
I am just an old sk8tr, 48 yrs old, pls if possible made Mini cubic in SPF and Powell Peralta Rat Bones 60 mm too, i love that shape, but with new formula it will be great!!!!— Danilo “Danilo” Goncalves
Hello there,— Tommi
Could it be possible to make an reissue of the very famous Adam McNatt "Claudia Schiffer" -deck? That would be cool. Thanks! Best regards,
I think it's time to make Aldrin Garcia and Stevie Reeves Pros, and give them their own models. Time for my beloved powell to start mixing things up a bit. Less Old School Ripper,Skull & Sword,etc. and more New School VCJ art, like the JESSE MARTINEZ TRIBUTE DECK; Sick! It'd be nice to see kids get back into powell, not just for Bones wheels. Love the Ripper, but less old graphs, and more new ones! Viva la Powell-Peralta— James “Cheek” Thurston

Hey, I'm a skating enthusiast from Sydney and have loved it from a young age, just wanted to say thank you for following what you love!I fell in love with the Dogtown articles, the doco and the film and can't wait to see the new autobiographical film, peace out and God bless— Jemma “cubby” schouten
I am not sure if this is of any interest to you, but I wanted to let you know that I currently have one of your Beamer boards up for auction on Ebay. The interest and communications that I have been receiving have been great. It was bought in the early '80s at a garage sale and has been up in my garage ever since.... I just wanted to let you know about the auction. I am sure you have plenty of them and would not have an interest in bidding, but I thought you may pass the info on if you know of someone who is interested in the board. Thanks so much... I have learned so much about your history in the past week. It's been really fun....— Coopdub
